1. Choose Your Destinations Wisely, Himachal Is Diverse
Tamanna Chaudhury shares, “Himachal the name itself says all, the scenic beauty, weather and atmosphere, hospitality and simplicity of the people, adventure, the list is never ending. “In the lap of Himalayas” (Himachal-Sanskrit meaning) is so rightly named. Those mysteriously snow covered mountains looks so serene and pristine as if we have stepped into God’s own land. Those misty breeze in the morning touching your face makes you calm from within and forget the worries of the world. I wonder if all this makes all the people staying here so loving and caring towards one another. I wish this part of the country stays as it is now, undisturbed by some.
2. Don’t Look Up Hotels, Opt For Homestays
HolidayIQ Traveller Anu Samuel shares about Sanjivs Aira Holme Retreat, Shimla, “The hotel is very far from the city. The room allotted to me was spacious and maintained neatly with basic amenities. You can glimpse the beautiful mountains from the room. The food was delicious both in quality and taste with lots of varieties. I surely recommend this hotel to other travellers.”
3. If Ladakh Attracts You, Go Solo Backpacking
HolidayIQ Traveller Nitin shares, “You feel like a free-spirit. Nothing beats the experience of discovering Ladakh and re-discovering yourself.”
4. Pack Light, You Might Go On An Impromptu Trek
Kaarthik SR shares about his trek to Har Ki Doon Valley, “Extremely pretty place with snow all over, please go before May to see snow on the trek, the trek starts from Taluka and ends at the same point. No food available on the trek. Plan for a minimum of 4 days.”
5. Always Try A New Dish, Like Bhagsu Cake In McLeodganj
Bhagsu cake is a must-have when in McleodGanj. The cake is packed in large trays cut into small pieces. The base is made up of crushed and packed biscuits on which sits a thick-yet-firm layer of chocolate.
HolidayIQ Traveller Gopish Prasad shares, “We stayed in Bhagsu for a couple of days. We paid 300 for the room, and it was worth it. There are many nice restaurants next door and around. Don’t forget to try the bhagsu cake!”
Himalayas Is Adventure! Go Paragliding In Solang Valley
HolidayIQ Traveller P Mahender shares, “It is very beautiful and attractive place, with all kinds of snow activities. We enjoyed ice skating, ice scooter riding, paragliding and yak riding there.”
